Volunteers Help Californians Reeling from Camp Fire


I could tell there
was something wasn’t right in the sky that day. It’s more than just smoke. There’s a fire that’s close. So pretty much we’re in
a tent, me and my family, due to the fact that we did
lose our house in Paradise. Our first house we
called home, that we felt this is a place we can
grow old, me and my husband, and watch our kids grow. [MUSIC PLAYING] Samaritan’s Purses here in
Butte County, California, responding to the Camp Fire. The Camp Fire is the worst
fire in California’s history. Over 14,000 homes have been
burned and over 50,000 people have been displaced. Many are living in tents, RVs,
shelters, with family members, and hotels. Samaritan’s Purse
is on the ground right now taking work orders at
the Disaster Recovery Center, praying with people,
loving people, meeting them where they’re at, and
helping them in Jesus’ Name. As areas start opening
up, we’re going to be going out into
community, helping homeowners retrieve
their personal belongings from their homes. We’ll also be
assisting homeowners by doing tree work in the
places where we can do that. Samaritan’s Purse has
hundreds of work orders. We are going to be
here for a long time. As we help our homeowners
through this devastating fire, working alongside
with them, giving them emotional and spiritual
care, and physical care, we’re going to need your help. We’re going to need you to
come and volunteer with us. And we’ll need your
prayer support. [MUSIC PLAYING]
